|I ordered 2 hostas which were very large and healthy, as were the ferns. They were very well rooted and should be very successful. The plugs were small. In fact, I didn't realize the 2 were wrapped together and I called the company to ask them where was the other plug. They told me to look at the packaging and I would see the second one. The person offered immediately to replace them if they were too small, but I think they'll be fine since they are healthy and well rooted. A very good value!

Since I recently relocated in the Northeast (west central PA), I thought I'd give this company a try. In general, I think it's a good practice to order live plants only from nurseries that are closer to your own locale, not across the country.
Ordered ten plants (Hostas and a Fern) and they arrived within a few days, as requested. PERFECT packing and one can see the plants were handled with loving care! Hardly a bend leaf in the bunch. They arrived fresh and moist and as lovely as if I had picked them off the nursery shelf myself. The plants are substantial and look vigorous and eager to grow. Even the couple of plugs were a decent size and healthy.
HIGHLY recommend this nursery for anything they carry. Very happy customer and plant to order again for years to come.

ANOTHER fabuous order. Plants arrived fresh and happy. Plants are gorgeous, huge, and healthy. Packed with obvious love and care. This owner obviously takes great pride in his nursery and it shows with old-world pride in every detail. Delightful. I hope to meet these people some day if I'm ever in New Hampshire. What a company!

|Ordered 11 hostas (6 plugs) and a fern, Due to my close prox.
to NH hostas delivery was overnight. can't comment on packaging
due to working late and someone else unpacked and watered.
all plants were impressive, root systems outstanding, my free plant
(Holy mouse ears) was in great condition. out of the 6 online distributors i used this season NH hostas i ranked #1.
(good job NH hostas). if they had a con it would have to be their $12 flat shipping fee that would keep someone from small orders.

|I have ordered plants from them twice. Each time the plants were received at an appropriate time in a healthy condition. This time I was in New Hampshire and stopped by the store. It happened to be a day when they were not open to the public. We realized the store was closed and my wife an I prepared to leave when the owner, Mr. Merritt, motioned me in. He had seen my license plate and noted that I was from out of state. He and PJ took the time to help me select two plants and make arrangements for them to be sent to my home. I appreciated the help and the consideration.

I received my order yesterday and was impressed. The packing of the pots with bamboo sticks to keep them from shifting in the packing box was excellent. All the plants were fresh looking despite the high temps during the journey from NH to TN. The size of the plants was as described on the webiste and all were well rooted. I had missed a plant on their website, and when I found that variety the next day they were still able to add it to my order. I would recommend this company.

I saw a garden program in which they talked about the Hosta 'Tongue Twister' and that it would retain its leaves late in the season. I checked New Hampshire Hostas, and they had it in stock. They were also having a sale, so I ordered some other hostas that were priced so low I couldn't resist. I ordered on Monday, got an email notifying me that they shipped on Tuesday, and had the plants on Thursday. All were nice and healthy with roots coming out of the bottom of the pots. I am very pleased!

Plants were very nice. It was as if I went to the nursery and hand picked the plants myself.
The website was very helpful and easy to navigate. The information from the website helped me easily plan out the hosta plantings.

First of all I really, really enjoyed shopping on this web site. It's very user friendly lots and lots of pictures and categories and information. I put in the order on line and paid with credit card, easy. Then I realized I forgot one and it was the one that was on sale. SMH, I called NHH and Richard answered the phone and took care of the problem. :)
Well, I received some beautiful plants from 'New Hampshire Hostas', just what I've been wanting. These are large Hostas that are ready to go into the ground and get big. I was very impressed with the size of the plants, they are extremely healthy and they were in 4.5 inch pots and very well packed. I bought ten hostas and got free shipping over fifty dollars and I got the order in four days. Prices were very reasonable especially considering the size, they are all three or four year plants. I am very happy. I will post pictures of all the plants on the Host thread. Thank you very much !!

It's me again, I have been having a ball on the website. I have printed out all the slug resistant hostas and the sun tolerant. I could not resist the autumn sale with the 33% off, great time to get those hostas I could not afford mid season. Plus free shipping makes me very happy. I just ordered another five hostas and they are kinda dormant but the roots are strong and healthy. I am very impressed, as always with the fast shipping.

I was happy with my order over-all. The Great Expectations they sent was huge! There was another plant I considered to be a bit small but It all balanced out because of the extra large GE they sent. At first the plants were not in good shape, the packing was not as good as in the past and I had a big mess because the dirt feel out of the pots and the hosta's were slightly stressed out to put it mildly. However they did perk up rapidly after I repoted them and they are so very beautiful.
I did contact the company and was given a full refund, but by then the plants had perked up so well, that I just sent the check back. I really am happy with my order and since I did report the problem I believe it will be corrected quickly. :)

Yes there maybe a little dirt loose in the box ,but a little water take care of that in a minute. Overall I find them to be the best.

|I was very happy with my entire experience with New Hampshire Hosta. the ordering experience was great. the website has TONS of pictures and categorization, as well as great sales. they had a deal running for free shipping on purchases over a certain amount, which was nice, but shipping seemed pretty reasonable before having been removed on my checkout. on top of that, the package went from new hampshire to nebraska in two days flat. they were ordered monday morning, shipped tuesday, and planted thursday afternoon.
i was skeptical about the shipping involved. i really couldnt fathom how mature plants would be packed effectively for travel 1500 miles. i was amazingly suprised when i opened my box. not a single damaged leaf, not a single dried out root ball, not a single stressed plant. they were laid flat, but within 10 minutes in the air and a bit of light, and they were looking perfect... 'Toy Soldier' was particularly stunning. can't wait to watch my shade garden mature over the years. big thanks and highest recommendations for this companies products and services!

|For my first time ordering from New Hampshire Hostas, I was completely overwhelmed after unpacking my order, which I received today. I could not stop smiling!!! Careful packing ... Not one leaf on the total of 20 different Hostas I ordered were damaged. That is amazing. Size of the plants is very much appreciated ... They obviously put a lot of love & passion into what they do & Hostas I could never find, well look no further ..... Choo Choo Train was part of my purchase because of my husband's passion for steam engine trains & it is absolutely beautiful!!!
Well, I wish I had found this company years & years ago, but I know of them now, so maybe I'll keep them a secret from my gardening friends ... That wouldn't be fair to NH Hostas, would it??? I'll have to re-think that.
Thank you all at NH Hostas!!!

|Ordeded 3 hostas last spring, I received the hostas in a timely manner. Upon opening the package, 2 of the hostas that I ordered had a letter attached to them with a check for half the price of the hostas. What a surprise! The hosta's foliage was accidentally frozen in shipment. I was assured that the roots were just fine. I planted both as directed in the letter and they are growing just fine. It was an over and above for New Hampshire Hostas. What an example of excellent customer service!! Thank you!

|This is my second year ordering from New Hampshire Hostas, and I couldn't be more pleased. The packaging is great, they use recycled materials such as newspaper, and the peanuts are made from corn, I had no problem lifting the products from their sides with minimal spillage. A small price to pay to keep packaging out of the land mines. Now back to the number one reason why I will continue to purchase from them, their plants are awesome, healthy, and grow with great success. Their website is fabulous, so much to choose from and very easy to navigate, and free shipping over $50. You will not be disappointed.

|Given all the great reviews, I was a little dissappointed in my order. First the positives: the web site is great, they have a tremendous selection (I've been looking for 'Glory' for years), prices are good, shipping was very fast and free with a $50 order. Now the negative: the packaging was not very good. The pots were lying on their sides in the box, so the newspaper and rubber band packing didn't contain the potting mix. I had a big mess of loose soil, damp newspaper, broken leaves and soil stuck to the leaf surfaces. I contacted the comapny and received an apology and an offer to make things right. I will wait until spring to see if the plants make it through the winter. Despite the packing mess, everything actually seemed really healthy.

|I placed my first order with New Hampshire Hostas about a week ago based on their very high rating here at Dave's Garden. I wasn't disappointed!
Theirs is a wonderfully informative website and they have a huge assortment of hostas. A real plus with me is that they offer free shipping with orders over $50! Nice!
The hostas arrived today. They were very well packed, and looked very fresh - (well, except that they were practically begging to be taken out of the box!!)
After unpacking, I placed them outside in a shady area to let their leaves stretch out a bit - and, boy, did they recover quickly! I checked on them after an hour and they look like they were never in a box travelling from New Hampshire to Wisconsin!
I'm very, very pleased with my 8 hostas I received from New Hampshire Hostas. There's nothing like purchasing plants from folks who obviously care very much about customer satisfaction.
